Reasons to be cheerful: letter D ( #R2BC )


Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

This week Michelle has reached the letter D in her alphabetical #R2BC so let's see if I can think of thing making me smile beginning with D...

1) Dad

Being geographically close to my dad is a real reason to be cheerful. Love seeing the way he is bonding with my children and it's great watching them together:

This was them examining great grandpa's medals together.

2) (Ken) Dodd

My children hadn't got a clue who the funny man with the duster was at Liverpool Lime St station but seeing his stature brought back happy memories for me!

3) Decorations

Seeing all my great grandfather's war decorations made me so proud of him. I can't imagine what he went through over the time span of the first world war but seeing his medals makes it seem more real.



  1. What lovely reasons to be cheerful :) x

  2. Oh my gosh. The first picture. And all those medals. My grandfather was WWII and now I'm a military wife to a veteran of the middle eastern wars. I just really have so much respect for what these soldiers sacrificed - all that time with family and comforts in strange, scary locations and circumstances to bring us peace and stability in our nations. And to be able to share this and those with his great grand children? Priceless!!! They'll probably never forget that moment for the rest of their lives. 

  3. Wonderful reasons to be cheerful. :) Your Dad is a very great man to have those medals, I'd be very proud of him, as I imagine you are. :) 

  4. Lovely post it makes a real difference when children have grandparents near by to share stories and achievements with xx 


I love it when people leave a message
